The mattresses all had covers! An absolute must in a hostel! The place was very clean, the cleaning could have been a bit better in shared bathrooms due to the size of the hostel some wastebaskets fill up quickly but overall very well cared for!

There was nothing to like about this property. Lift was not working, stuff were very rude. I can not think of any thing good about this hotel.

Smelled like a dirty toilet and hair on the sheets indicating they were not clean

Great location, in walking distance from everything. A little noisy, but location made up for it.

Very expensive for a basic room. Also extra charges to store luggage. Mattresses were plastic, and had to make our own beds. A satisfactory albeit underwhelming experience.

We stayed one night. The room was clean, staff friendly, and we were happy with the location. The only downside was that there was no air conditioning. It happened to be a warm day/night. Overall though, we were very happy with our stay. Would stay here again.

super friendly helpful staff and great clean hostel fantastic eating/ lounge area and roof top- great location- would absolutely stay here again great great food

Front desk staff were all welcoming and very helpful with all my questions and concerns. Bunk was good; two showers and a toilet in the room which was convenient. They should think of adding a shelf or two in the shower for people to put shower bottles and stuff. The elevator is slow and takes time but nothing major. Safe and very central area, close to Nyhavn and the major museums and attractions.

Centrally located, great atmosphere in the bar and lounge areas

Clean big comfortable rooms close to city centre.

This is the second Generator I've stayed at. Very similar experience. The beds are good and sturdy, a big chest to lock your stuff up, and a nice social area downstairs to meet other people staying there. The location is also in a decent spot near most tourist attractions. My main complaint is with the door. It slams shut so if you're coming in late slowly close it yourself.

Hotel was too spartan for 60+ year old. Booking agent did not adequately describe property

I loved Generator, mainly because of the low cost accommodation. But I was amazed by how this design-centric hostel had beautiful hang out spaces. Moreover, the shared 8-bed dorm I stayed at was immaculately clean, and the people I boarded with that one night I stayed there, were respectful and considerate. I already booked Generator for my upcoming visit to Barcelona (normally I was going to stay at a posh hotel, but I'm so glad I've made the switch).

Beds are comfortable, room is clean. Centrally located. Awesome atmosphere with bar, restaurant, and lounge

First time in a. Hostel and this one was great! Staff was friendly and helpful. The location was perfect and it was pretty quiet. Which I was not expecting. Overall a great economical place to stay for a short trip.

Clean room but very small room. Location was nice center of city also near kings garden.

Excellent! I recommend this hostel to everyone. The best choice in Copenhagen!

Esta bien ubicado el hotel pero como no hay ammenities si hay que llevar tu propio shampoo y jabòn y si se olvida hay un super enfrente, esta a 10 min caminando de una plaza muy bonita con tiendas y un restaurante nord delicioso es tambien un hostal el hotel o sea no hay lujo
